Central States Hammer-in Pictures (image heavy)


Recommended Posts

Okay, get a cup of coffee.  This was my first hammer-in but I think I covered it well enough that those of you who didn't get to go will feel as if you did.  I took over 200 pictures,  so it too me some time to work them up and sort them out.  Hope you enjoy.

Well, I hope some folks get some enjoyment out of it.  There was also a Hit-and-Miss engine show going on and I had a ball with all of that.

That's a lot of knowledge in the first six pictures.

 

Wish I could have been there.

Those are some nice pictures of what looks to be a very good time.

 

I really miss these kinds of events, I hope that I will get to go to a few next year.

I always get a real kick of inspiration after seeing what others are doing
